Kathy’s Pick: 2016 Left Coast Cellars White Pinot Noir $20.00

With Thanksgiving coming up soon, I was looking at the different Pinot Noirs that we carry around the wine shop, when I remembered the Left Coast Cellars. I have enjoyed the last two vintages of their White Pinot, and this 2016 is even better. Yes, it is a Pinot Noir, just with very little skin contact, so it is a beautiful, pale salmon color. Still a good wine to go with the traditional turkey dinner, it has flavors of Rainier cherry, peach and poached pear.  Rich and broad, it offers bright, balancing acidity on the palate, with a lingering mineral finish. Try something different this year and surprise the relatives.
